Chapter 5 – The Rambling Section

In 1920 Mr Rippin proposed that during the summer months conducted walks over the least known paths in the district would do much to popularise the association.

1921 It is hoped to continue these rambles this season if more volunteers will come forward to help.

A representative of the Boy Scout movement was on the committee.

It was agreed that Mr G. Waddington should arrange for advertisments to be placed in the local paper on a Friday night.

A programme of 1925 lists Easter April 19th until September 26th. These fornightly walks started by a train, tram or bus journey.

The rambles committe in 1925 consisted of: Miss Benson, Miss Fox, Miss Joyce, Mr H.H. Flower, Mr S.J. Pick, Mr W.H. Rippin, Mr C.R. Robson, Mr J. Sanders, Mr J.J. Wheatley & Mr J. Howard Wright.

From the Commons, Open Spaces & Footpaths Preservation Society a note on the legal position “The Barbed Wire Nuisances” dated December 1937 is reproduced.
